Fainting is a decrease in consciousness. Generally, fainting is caused by decreased blood flow to the brain. However, fainting can also be caused by diseases that occur in the brain and disturb the center of consciousness.
Conditions that can cause fainting include:
Seizures, for example in epilepsy or brain infection. Seizures may be accompanied by a drooping limb and foam discharge from the mouth. However, it can also not be accompanied by this, depending on the type of seizure
Dehydration, for example when fasting or lack of fluid intake
Heat stroke, which is a condition where the body temperature increases due to exposure to environmental heat or activities that increase body temperature such as exercise. Fainting is one of the symptoms that can be experienced
Lack of blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia): this can also occur in people with diabetes who take sugar drugs in excess doses
Heart / blood circulation disorders, for example in cases of shock or heart attack
To determine the cause of your complaint, it is better to consult further with a neurologist. The doctor will further explore your complaint and will examine your nerve function and circulation. If necessary, the doctor will carry out supporting examinations such as x-rays, CT scans, blood tests, heart electrical examinations (EKG). And after that the doctor will provide treatment for your complaint according to the underlying conditions. If your seizures are caused by heart or blood circulation problems, the neurologist will discuss your complaint with a cardiologist and blood vessel specialist.
Things you can do to improve and prevent worsening of your disease are:
Always try to have people close to you so they can immediately help you when you pass out
Drink enough water, about 2 liters / day
Consume nutritious food regularly and sufficiently according to your nutritional and calorie adequacy numbers. Avoid excessive diets
Get enough rest, sleep 7-8 hours per day
Wear a hat and closed clothes when in the hot sun to avoid direct exposure to your body heat
Exercise at least 3 times a week to support good blood circulation
Fainting that is often repeated, often accompanied by chest pain, weakness in the limbs, accompanied by a high fever are signs of emergency. If there is this, you must immediately consult a doctor or the nearest emergency room for immediate treatment.
That is the explanation from me. Hopefully helpful and useful. Get better soon :)
